4th January Rotherham vs Plymouth

By Kevin Westlake at Clifton Lane. After the first weekend break since the middle of August, Albion returned to action in National One against former Championship Rivals Rotherham Titans. Head Coach James Scaysbrook made several changes to the team defeated by Cinderford in terrible conditions at Brickfields a fortnight ago. The backline saw the introduction of youngsters Shea Cornish, Sam Morley and Joe Snow, with Connor Eastgate moving to Full Back. The forwards were bolstered by the returning Lewis Pearson and John Kelly, with England under 20 hopeful Rusi Tuima replacing injured skipper Herbie Stupple. In front of 481 supporters,...

Match Report: Plymouth vs Cinderford

PLYMOUTH ALBION 5-18 CINDERFORD By Jack Guthrie James Scaysbrook’s first home game as Plymouth Albion head coach ended in defeat, as they lost to Division one rivals Cinderford 18-5 after the away side’s “really dominant” performance. Scaysbrook believed that Albion were not accurate enough when they had their opportunities saying: “that last little bit of skill and composure in the last five meters is what we lacked.” Fullback Dan Powell also felt that the loss of captain Herbie Stupple in the first half was crucial in the game commenting: “Herbie’s so influential and he’s so strong in the forward game...

14th December Rams vs Plymouth

Match Report by Richard Ashton Third-placed Rams made it four wins on the spin and 11 in 15 at the halfway point of the season, ensuring they sit just a point behind leaders Richmond. And after one of their best all-round performances of the season – where the likes of Kieran Leicester, Connor Hayhow, Ollie Cole and two-try star man Jamie Guttridge continued to show improvement week-on-week – Reynolds believes his side can continue to grow in the third tier of English rugby. He said: “If you give young local talent an opportunity, and you let them make mistakes with...

7th December Plymouth vs Hull Ionians

By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion scraped a crucial win against league strugglers Hull Ionians after a physical match ended as an 11-try thriller at the Brickfields. Albion director of rugby Nigel Sparrow felt they deservedly won saying: “had we just had more control than them in the right parts of the pitch it would have been easier, but they never gave up and it was a fair result.” He continued by praising the forwards’ performance adding: “there’s some aspects that went really well, our tight play was good and our line-out went well. If I’m hypercritical I think we gave...

23rd November Plymouth vs Chinnor

By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion came away with a draw against their National Division One rivals Chinnor on Saturday, as their physical battle with the Oxfordshire side saw both teams claim points as the game ended 10-10. Albion’s Captain George Mills felt that: “it was a really tough, close game, the team’s been a bit thin on the ground and we’ve had to make a few changes, but we pulled through and were unlucky not to get the win.” Albion held control for the most of the first half, as a sin-bin for Chinnor’s Peter Laverick early in proceedings gave...

9th November Plymouth vs Birmingham Moseley

By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion were able to shut out fifth-placed Birmingham Moseley and deservedly win 19-7 at the Brickfields on Saturday after a commanding first-half performance proved too much for the away side to overturn in their Division One match-up. Albion’s head coach Ben Gulliver described his side’s performance as: “outstanding, to come up 19 points to nil at half-time, we couldn’t have asked for more from the boys. It was just a bit disappointing that we didn’t get the bonus-point in the second half, but that’s credit to Moseley.” The home side set the tone early on, asserting...

2nd November Cambridge vs Plymouth

Provided by the Cambridge Independent. Game management will be the big lesson learnt by Cambridge in their 20-20 draw with Plymouth Albion at Volac Park on Saturday. Draws are something of a sparsity in rugby union, but no-one can quibble with the outcome as squally conditions made for tough going as defences were on top in a match of few opportunities for either set of backs. Having gained a 20-0 lead in the first half, Cambridge will perhaps kick themselves that they did not go on to take victory, but they should not do so. What the hosts should look...

Jon Dawe has found his place at Albion

JON DAWE PUTS SIGNATURE TO ALBION CONTRACT… Jon Dawe feels he has found his place in the Plymouth Albion team – centre. When he first arrived at the club, the Launceston-born player was on the wing and admits he was “a bit wary” about that position. “But moving to centre has worked out better and everyone agrees it suits my playing style,” says Jon, 25. “I’ve had to earn my place and in my first season there were lot of other players about. But the senior players have really helped to push me and my rugby is just getting better...

Cam Setter agrees new contract

SETTER LOOKING TO MAKE AN IMPACT IN 2019-2020 SEASON… Plymouth Albion scrum half Cam Setter considers himself lucky that he got through last season with no serious injuries, just a few knocks and bumps. “I started off the season a bit up and down – not getting picked and us not winning games as well,” admits the 25-year-old. “But we did finish on a high. And I appreciate that there are lots of reasons why a player doesn’t get picked – you need to keep that competition alive. It’s not personal. It’s that some things work better than others and...
